Legal Services for Executive Employment Contracts
The Boyd Law Group, PLLC can help you negotiate, draft, or review your executive employment package to ensure that it is fair and that you are getting the best market-valued deal. When drafting and negotiating compensation and benefit provisions for an executive employment agreement, numerous issues should be considered. Our attorneys are well-versed in these issues and have represented countless executives in obtaining optimum deals.
Many options are available in employment contracts, especially at the executive level. These agreements generally involve more expansive conditions and terms than other employment agreements. For this reason, it is important to fully understand the terms being offered as well as to be able to negotiate for better compensation plans and potential guarantees. Having the knowledge and skills of an employment attorney who is experienced in advocating for executives can be invaluable.
The issues that we can assist you with include:
- Base salary and criteria for increases
- Guaranteed minimum duration of employment
- Annual bonus provisions
- Signing bonuses
- Merit-based discretionary and/or guaranteed bonuses
- Performance-based bonuses and their metrics
- Equity awards and vesting schedules
- Non-competition and non-solicitation provisions
- Perks, including parachute payments and benefit packages
- Expense reimbursement
- Termination for cause as opposed to “at will” employment
- Resignation involving good cause that does not jeopardize severance
- Contractual severances
- Contract renewal options
Obviously, the best time for you as an executive to negotiate your contract terms and conditions is prior to an offer and acceptance. If you are an employee who needs to respond to an employment contract offer or who wants to obtain a written employment agreement with a prospective employer, our firm is ready to provide the assistance you need.
